Doctor Patient Relationship

Below are insights into examples of best practices for improving transitional care, focusing on information about what caregivers/patients/hospitals need to do to improve the patient transition process from one doctor/physician to another. Equally, the research includes two case analyses regarding programs designed to improve doctor-patient relationships.

1. BEST PRACTICES FOR TRANSITIONAL CARE

Patients requesting their medical records, using hospital transitional clinics, and using local care coordinators are three examples of best practices for transitioning from one doctor to another. More details on each best practice are provided below.

2. CASE STUDIES ON PROGRAMS TO IMPROVE DOCTOR-PATIENT RELATIONSHIPS

Telemedicine programs and concierge & direct care programs are two examples of care providers' initiatives to improve physician-patient relationships. The details of these programs also include examples of institutions currently using them, including a vendor of technological solutions designed to improve such relationships.

Research Methodology

The best practices uncovered above are reported across numerous reports by health affiliated websites. The practices feature expert opinions and are also actively used in the current health care ecosystem. Thus, based on those attributes, the three factors identified above were qualified as best practices for transitional care when a patient switches from one PCP to another. Unfortunately, none of the reports included statistical data showing the efficacy of these practices, besides general declarations regarding their effectiveness.
